Description


“Asher’s fine biography brings [Algren] to life with breathless intensity.”—Deirdre Bair, National Book Award–winning author of Samuel Beckett: A Biography


For a time, Nelson Algren was America’s most famous author, lauded by the likes of Richard Wright and Ernest Hemingway. But despite Algren’s talent, he abandoned fiction and fell into obscurity. Colin Asher’s acclaimed biography unravels the enigma of his disappearance and reclaims Algren as a towering literary figure.
